Abstract

A pseudo-Fourier modal analysis method for analyzing finite-sized dielectric slabs with arbitrary longitudinal permittivity and permeability profiles is proposed. In the proposed method, the permittivity and permeability profiles are represented by the Fourier expansion without using the conventional staircase approximation. The total electromagnetic field distribution inside a dielectric slab is a linear superposition of extracted pseudo-Fourier eigenmodes with specific coupling coefficients selected to satisfy given boundary conditions. The proposed pseudo-Fourier modal analysis method shows excellent agreement with the conventional rigorous coupled-wave analysis with the S-matrix method.
